Tips for making a simple, beautiful and cheap wedding invitation
A computer, a printer and a little creativity is enough to create a unique and special wedding invitation. However, before starting to do yours it’s important to look at some details, see what they are in the list below:
What style of your party?
Start answering this question. From it you already have an idea of where to start. Keep in mind that the invitation is the first contact the guests will have with your wedding. That is, if the bride and groom sends a rustic invitation, the guests assume that the ceremony and party follow in the same style and the rule holds true for any wedding style.
So, combine the invitation with the party style, so the guests are already prepared for what’s to come.
Clarity and objectivity
Even though the invitation is informal and relaxed, clearly and objectively inform the date, time and place information of the party and the ceremony. This also applies to the choice of paper and the color that the invitation will be printed on.
Ready Versus Original Templates
On the internet there are several simple wedding invitation templates to edit and print. However, they may be limited as to personalization. If the bride and groom wishes a personalized invitation the most recommended is to create one. In this case it is possible to either make out, in some graph, or do it on your own. And do not worry, it’s a bit complicated, on the contrary, you’ll see from the tutorial videos below that it’s very simple to make a personalized wedding invitation.
The invitation can be made in Word, a text editing program but it is somewhat limited in some functions. The ideal is to use drawing programs, such as Corel Draw, for example. If you have questions about using this type of program, ask for help from someone you know about the area or, to be sure, refer to a design professional.
Which paper to choose for the invitation?
The choice of paper will mainly depend on the style of the wedding. But, as a rule, the paper for invitation should have a heavier weight, above 200g, that means that the paper is much more full-bodied than a sulfite, for example. It is also possible to opt for textured or smooth papers, the first one combines more with rustic or modern weddings, and the second one is well suited to classic weddings.
